Galaxy Z Flip 3 Receiving Android 12 Stable Update

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 is now receiving Android 12 Stable update. This is currently rolling out to users in Serbia according to SamMobile with more users expected to get the update over the coming days and weeks across more countries.

I have the Galaxy Z Flip 3 here in Kenya, and I’m yet to get the update. I’ve tried using a VPN set to Serbia to try and force an update, but that doesn’t seem to be working. The only solution if you want the update as soon as possible, now that it’s a stable rollout is to either flash manually, or wait for whenever the update will be available across more users worldwide.

The update also brings the December Security patch from Google. Which could mean that when that update arrives, it may bring the stable Android 12 Update to your device. Fingers-crossed.

On top of the new Android 12 Features, with the update, Samsung is rolling out One UI 4.0 with new Animations, enhancements to the camera app, complete overhaul of the Battery and Device Care sub-setting, updated widgets, redesigned quick settings panel and much more.
